Creating a Client-Side Image Map

Image maps link the areas of an image with a series of URLs so that a click in each area brings the user to a different page. There are two kinds of image maps, client-side and server side (see page 132). Client-side image maps run more quickly because they are interpreted in your visitors' browsers and don't have to consult the server for each click. In addition, since they do not require create, and you don't need to consult your Internet service provider, nor get their permission. Only very old browsers may not understand them.

Figure 7.27. You can put the map anywhere you like in your HTML document. Each clickable area is defined by its own set of coordinates, and has an individual URL.
